I'm not sure whether this was actually over Bombay Beach or way far east of it. I do know that the orange glow near the bottom is light pollution from Bombay Beach.
Shot via telephoto lens from atop Mount Laguna, California on August 3, 2017.
As with the other lightning shots I've recently posted, this is not Photoshopped - the moon was setting to my back and it did an awesome job of lighting up the layers of clouds here.
Shot with my Canon 6D and Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens at 10 sec f/5.0 ISO 1600 150mm.
I spent two nights shooting epic lightning, sunrises, and sunsets with another photographer Jeff Morris.
